Wow!! 2 very nice farms of Rolling Eastern South Dakota Cropland, only separated by a roadway. Majestic Farms and Gertrude Peterson Trust have for years worked diligently to turn these farms into as highly productive pieces as can be found in the area. We all know and understand the value of not having such a high base price ($15,000 – $20,000/acre) and yet having land that will yield and perform right up there with the new hybrids of today. Surely if you can buy almost twice as many acres, your total number of bushels may far exceed those of less acres of higher priced land. The present owners and tenants have taken pride in making these farms top yielders and should be a real bonus for you and your operation.
The Union County FSA has much of this land combined with other adjoining land so the following figures may be adjusted up or down by the FSA according to their rules and regulations and are not to be deemed exact. All the 156EZs are posted on our website so refer to them and rely on your own judgement when bidding.
Tract 1 shows approximately Corn base of 61.1 acres with a 158 bu. PLC Yield Index and an approximately 66.18 Soybean base with a 42 bu. PLC Yield Index. The NRCS Office shows the Main Soil types to be Crofton, Alcester, Crofton Nora and McPaul with weighted Productivity Rating of 59.6.
The FSA Office has Tract 2 combined with adjoining land as well but shows Corn base to have a 158 bu. PLC Yield Index and the soybeans to have a 42 bu. PLC Index as well. The NRCS office shows the main soil types to be Crofton, Crofton Nora, with smaller amounts of Alcester and Moody Nora. The farm carries a weighted average productivity Rating of 49.2.
We are in an ever-changing world this day and age. It is becoming extremely hard to find moderately priced ground that has proven yield potential and great growth possibilities. Smaller 80 acre and 160-acre tracts are being consolidated into larger and larger operations and may becoming harder and harder to find as the race grows more intense. This sale is offering you a great opportunity to purchase a substantial amount of land whether you want 1 tract or both and put you in a stronger position going into the future. For a lot of us it was the foresight and fortitude of our forefathers and mothers who saw the future and gave us a start. Now is it your time to secure your families holdings and strengthen their future. If so these 2 farms may very well play a key role. All the best.
